President's Message - June 30, 2023

Good Morning members and retirees of USW Local 5328. 

Well the shutdown is upon us!! A much needed break!! 

 A reminder, Saturday July 1, Canada Day, will be observed today, Friday June 30 for 8 hour workers only. 

 For those working during the shutdown, if you are on a schedule of 8 or 12 hour shifts and being moved to another schedule, you are entitled to premium pay, overtime, for your first shift. Please check your pay statement after the shutdown. 

 Let’s hope all is well after the shutdown and we can actually produce some material!! 

For information, Please see below for information on the Canada Life priority line. This is a phone line reserved for ArcelorMittal employees to reach Canada-Life. The waiting time is reduced and the customer service agents who answer this line are trained on our insurance policies.

All employees and retirees can use this line to obtain information on their insurance coverage or claim. 

Happy Canada Day and have a great vacation!! 

In solidarity, 

Anthony Ciaramella
